Service was very good. Food was just good but not quite up to the price. The salt in the wound was a $5 valet charge. Not only that, but the head valet, when I told him our hotel had said there was no charge, said yes it is right here on the sign. Are you kidding me? Meals with drinks... More

We had a wonderful dinner outside overlooking the gulf of Mexico. Cosimo was excellent. He brought anniversary roses to our wives before dinner and was very attentive to our needs the entire evening. I highly recommend Baleen's and if you can, ask for Cosimo.

Naples Florida, in December, a 5:15pm dinner reservation is important to ensure not missing the 5:35pm 'spectacular' Sunset show over the Gulf of Mexico! Following that to enjoy another 90 minutes of food & beverage excellence that Baleens offers up time and time again! Consistently excellent food preparations and hosted by Marco the Floor Manager, Bari our Server, to Alex... More

A birthday celebration it was and fun was had with our friends. Unfortunately, the food didn't quite live up to our collective expectations. This was doubly disappointing because of the expensive prices for most of the entrees, especially the special, which was cobia. Cobia is a fish we love. It was not well prepared or served. One big chunk with... More

This was such a surprise from my husband for our anniversary dinner. Our server, Adriano, whom I HIGHLY recommend was amazing!! While I asked a lot of questions about the different wines he explained them all and the different parts of the appetizers as well. He was very thoughtful in asking to take our picture to capture the perfect evening.... More

Perfect place to grab a nice dinner on the beach. We walked from the Ritz. Bit of a walk, but manageable. Food was very good. Pricey, but consistent with the area and location. We ate outside and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for dinner. Great waiter. Good bourbon selection. Don't hesitate.

Of course, the view is to die for! our right on the Gulf waters. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. We had a delightful waiter named Adriano. If you have the opportunity to visit Baleen between Dec 1st- April 30th you can do the private outdoor dining right on the beach. So I know we'll be back... More

From the efficient valet parking, to the fabulous service staff to the wonderful food --this was a great experience from start to finish. We were seated on the porch hoping for a sunset but clouds were heavy. Our wait staff was headed by Adriano and he may be the best waiter in Naples. The menu covers seafood, meat, pasta and... More
